Index Cards for June 28 through July 3 and a recap of June ICs

Here are the latest ICADs, which are hosted by Tammy at Daisy Yellow.

This week's prompt was stamps and stamping.  Since I'm not really a stamper, I found a stamped image in a catalog and used it, along with some rick rack and card stock.  I sewed everything together and there is no glue on this one.

Various leftovers were sewn together to make this card.

Here's another stamped image I found in my stash.  I colored the background with dye ink, then sewed the images to the page.

I made a mosaic of my 30 ICs for June.

I began July with a piece of mop up paper towel and the excess from a heart I cut and painted on the 26th of June.

I was in the mood to sew on July 2, after I found these disparate pieces that were either painted or from a magazine.  There's also a sticker.  

Bleubeard decided to get in on the action and was responsible for today's IC.  This was made using bingo dabbers and a single colored and punched circle.  He's learning repetition (grin).

I hope you find some of these you liked, and have had fun seeing the entire previous month, too.

Beautiful grouping of ICADs for June, Elizabeth! Bleubeard shows promise with his dabber piece. ;) I think I need one of those little craft/toy sewing machines. (grin) have a wonderful day! Hugs

I enjoy it so much when you stitch on your art! Love the effect of texture--even the hanging threads! I think my favorite is the little collage from June 29...love them all! ☺

Fun to see your array of June ICADs in that nice mosaic you made E!
The candle image card sure is special ... extra impressed it's all stitched too.
Wishing you and Bleubeard a Happy 4th...
Mr M and I are playing tourist and staying a couple of nights in Wash DC eventho it is very close to where we live...it takes the pain out of trying to get in and out of the city to see the fireworks on The Mall.

Wow Elizabeth, I love all of your cards this week. Nice summery colours and great composition. I am really digging your stitching. The candle card turned out great. Bleubeard's repeating card looks great too - I think he is hinting that he would like you to place a treat on each circle. :)

The mosaic really shows all the variety of your ICADS! Very clever to use a "stamped image" from a magazine!

Lovely cards this week. I love the sewn one with the heart cutout. I was all ready to praise your stamping until I read what you wrote. LOL I recycle my stampington mag all the time, especially the one that have the stamp catalog in the back.

Another inspiring group of ICArDs Elizabeth. I particularly like the yellow dabbed one that Bluebeard got in on the action with. I like his choice of a single green dot. I've got some lovely coloured bingo dabbers and the colours are so bright too. I've had lots of fun just going dab dab dab ;)
Hope you are having a fabulous July 4th :o))
